Hi. I'm new to drones in general & to yuneec.
I have the windows version of uav pilot Sim.
Is it possible to bind my st16 to it or am I wasting my time?
I fiddled with it for an hour & am done until I can get some direction.
Do I need the USB dongle version?
Thanks in advance.

You do need the dongle! It converts the RC signals from the ST16 into the serial data used by the program.

Thanks so much for the helpful info!
I don't have any hair or I'd be pulling it out!
Is there any place that still sells the dongle?
Yuneec UK says they're on backorder.
I can't find them anywhere.
Thanks again for your helpful insight!

A question that I haven't seen asked before. Will the 16s controller for the plus work with the UAV PILOT DONGLE?
Cheers.

It will work I’ve used it.
Thank you for that,it's good news. I have the dongle but I couldn't get it to work, so I must be doing something wrong. There was no instructions just a dongle in a little blister pack! Pittl their wasn't more info with it.
Regards.

I haven’t used it for a while so I can’t remember exactly how to set up. I think if you search Yuneec EU / typhoon h plus simulator you might get what you need there. I hope this helps. I’m going to go back and retrieve the emails I saved from Yuneec and maybe I can be of more help. Let us know if you’re successful. BTW, I just remembered that I did have instructions with the dongle but they were for the st10/16 for the q500 and h480. I keep having little flashbacks. If the yuneec eu search doesn’t yield results try Yuneec DE. 🤔

I will try a google search now but I am sure that I tried that when I got the dongle back in November of last year. Thanks again for your help.

If you can talk to someone in support there you might have better results. It was a Yuneec tech support in the US that sent me the link.

So I did as you suggested and put in a search on the forum and found some useful info. I will rest over the tread and try their suggestions.
